Lemony Snicket

Mr. Poe, a friend of the family, comes trekking across the foggy beach to tell the Baudelaires that their parents have died in a fire that also burned down the family mansion. Now orphaned, the Baudelaires face an uncertain future. They are soon packed off to their new guardian--- the icky Count Olaf, who is a distant cousin. But when they move in with the Count, the Baudelaire children are certain that he does not care about them--- he only wants to get his hands on the fortune Mr. and Mrs. Baudelaire left behind. See if they are right, as you read this exciting and humorous tale of mystery. Ages 10 & up

A little creepier than I remember it being when I originally read it. Also, explaining the vocabulary throughout the story got a little annoying to me -- but it is helpful to explain the big words Lemony Snicket uses!
